Scotland international winger Burke has missed the past three matches due to an ankle injury but has now returned to training ahead of the the clash at the King Power Stadium.

Fellow wide man Ferguson, on loan from Newcastle, played no part in last Saturday's 1-1 draw against Millwall due to illness but is also back in the fold.

However, midfielder Jonathan Spector misses out with a recurrence of his ankle injury having been forced off at half-time versus the Lions.

Keith Fahey is set to miss the remainder of the season with his troublesome hip injury and is sidelined along with fellow long-term absentees Marlon King, Stephen Carr, David Murphy and Will Packwood.
